Today, marriage and divorce are common experiences for most people. Of the nearly 90% of people who marry, about half get divorced. But commonality and frequency do not make divorce any less painful for those going through it. At The Solomon Firm, we provide strong representation through divorce and all its accompanying issues.
Working out a fair and satisfactory child custody arrangement can be one of the most difficult aspects of divorce, especially when parents disagree about visitation schedules and other issues. Down the road, a change of custody may be necessary and beneficial. Family law attorney Tricia Solomon is knowledgeable in all areas of Georgia child custody law.
In Georgia, child support is determined by a legal formula based on income, family size, and other factors, so determining how much child support you will be required to pay or entitled to receive is reasonably predictable. However, legal issues arise when child support isn’t paid or isn’t used appropriately. We can help with any child support issue you have.
Alimony—also referred to as spousal support or spousal maintenance—is money paid to a former spouse by the other former spouse for the purposes of financial support. Generally, under Georgia law, alimony is only authorized in limited situations upon divorce, and it is meant to be rehabilitative. Our family lawyers help clients in all types of alimony matters.
When it comes to property division upon divorce, Georgia is an “equitable division” state. This means all marital property acquired during the marriage is subject to division. Unsurprisingly, disputes often arise regarding property division and what is “equitable.” The Solomon Firm helps clients assert their rights in property division proceedings.
A lot can happen in the years following divorce—people lose jobs, get promoted, go to college, get sick, and all of life’s other ups and downs. When a significant life change occurs, a modification of a child custody or support order may be appropriate and necessary. We help people seek and challenge court order modifications.
In Georgia, legitimation is the process fathers must use (other than marriage to the mother) to establish parental rights to a child. A legal step above paternity, legitimation provides fathers with the right to seek custody and visitation, as well as the obligation to support their child(ren) financially. At The Solomon Firm, we represent fathers and mothers in legitimation proceedings.
As a family trial lawyer, Attorney Solomon has significant experience litigating prenuptial agreements in Georgia family courts. Our knowledge and skill cover enforceability of and challenges to prenuptial agreements, and because we are intimately familiar with prenuptial agreements, we know how to draft them effectively as well.
In Georgia, your marriage can be annulled if it is “void,” which means it is prohibited under Georgia law or never had the potential to be valid. Given the strict requirements of annulment, sound legal advice is necessary to determine if you are eligible and to provide the foundation to obtain an annulment. The Solomon Firm offers the counsel and guidance you need.
Contempt & Noncompliance
If a former spouse or your child’s other parent violates a court order regarding support, custody, or visitation, we can help you file a petition in court for contempt and noncompliance. We also provide defense representation if an action for contempt and noncompliance has been filed against you. Our family law litigator is a strong and persuasive advocate on your behalf.
When grandparents come to raise their grandchildren, it is necessary to legally establish grandparents’ rights regarding child custody. Also, grandparents can seek visitation with their grandchild(ren) if they have not been given access, such as when one parent is deceased or does not get visitation with the child(ren). Our firm can assist you in any grandparents’ rights matters.
